Dear Tadmor family,

Currently we ARE planning on having summer 2020 as planned.

The corona pandemic has been a trial for our country and our world. Many have died, many more are sick, and the rest of us are staying home. Continue with me to pray about these terrible things and look for ways to serve others during this crisis.

As it relates to Tadmor, we are currently closed through April 30th. This brings sadness to us because we are normally bursting at the seams during this season with outdoor schools, church groups, and our own programs. Instead we are closed and not allowing visitors. We are using this time for some projects that can only be done when no one else is at camp. That said, we look forward to a time when we can once again be on mission, connecting people relationally with one another and with God in this beautiful setting.

Some have asked what the plan is for summer. I honestly don't know. It seems the course our country is on changes almost daily as new information breaks. For now, we are planning on having summer 2020 as planned. If we have to modify summer we will let you know as soon as we know what those modifications are. As for deposits, you can register your campers with confidence. If we are unable to have camp this summer we will offer refunds.

One thing is clear to me. Once the pandemic is over our kids will need camp more than ever. I imagine that being out of the house and running around in God's creation with a bunch of real-live peers will be more life-giving than ever to them. In the meantime I encourage you to meditate on the words of Paul in his letter to the Philippians: Do not be anxious about anything. Instead, in every situation, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, tell your requests to God. And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Dear parents, church leaders, and Tadmor friends,

It has been a tragic time for our world with changes happening daily. Tadmor is using social media (Facebook and Instagram) to post real-time updates and offer fun content for campers and churches. Please take a moment to follow / like us on either of these two platforms so that you don't miss anything.

A few have inquired about what we are going to do this summer. Currently summer is three months away and much can happen between now and then. As of now we are still planning on having summer. We are hiring staff and getting programs ready. By then kids will be desperate to get out of the house and spend time with real people in person. If anything changes related to summer, we will let you know.

Sincerely,

James Garner (Maverick)

Dear Tadmor Family, Guests and Partners,

Camp Tadmor is now suspending its programs and rentals for the next four weeks. This decision was made in order to follow the instruction of our national and state leaders and to ensure the safety of all that would come to Tadmor.

We as a full-time staff are all still at camp and working to get ready for our events later this Spring. We are excited about our summer programs and believe that camp will be a huge breath of fresh air by that time. Registration IS open and many of you have been registering over this last weekend! In the meantime, join us as we pray both for the health of our nation and remember that God is in control.

Sincerely,

James Garner (Maverick)
